weatherthestorm.JPGU.S. Public Libraries Weather the Storm Public libraries continue to transform lives by providing critical services and innovative solutions to technology access, in spite of years' worth of cumulative budget cuts. Libraries are part of the solution for those in search of the digital connection and skills required by today's competitive global marketplace. However, unless strategic investments in U.S. public libraries are broadened and secured, libraries will not be able to continue to provide the innovative and critical services their communities need and demand.
